Question about 2000 Volvo S80

1 Answer

Heavy vibration from motor

I have a Volvo s80 T6 and when the a/c is on the the motor vibrates a lot. It sometimes vibrates the inside on the car. I feel like its definitely a problem. I have heard other people S80s and when their ac and clutch kicks on it isnt loud at all. when the a/c is off I have no problem.

The problem happens at idle most of the time. Also the motor sounds like a diesel truck. Im sure I have an exhaust leak but the motor doesnt need to sound like a truck. I really need some professional advice please.

Volvos are hard to diagnose without a visual, but there are a couple of issues that I will try, There is a solonoid that increases the revs when the air con is switched on, this helps the engine with the extra load, if the vaccuum or electric supply to this solonoid fails the revs will not increase and drop the revs causing extreme hardship and rough idle. Lastly, inspect all supporting engine mounts, make sure they are not split or oil saturated. Hope these tips help you minimize costs and resolve your problem, safe driving.

How do you replace the shift solenoidon a 2002 volvo s80 t6


actually, it's starting out in hi gear. The sensor is inside the trans housing, so it's a lot of work to lower the sub frame with engine and trans attached. An EODB that reads and resets the TCM will allow you to drive it. Just don't shift to "D", and it will run fine; you just won't have overdrive (so your mpg will suffer).

1999 Volvo S80 T6, Starts blower on its own.


If you are talking about the thermo electric cooling fan, its operation is independent of the car's electical system. It is switched on and off by the engine temperature. When you park, the engine heat soaks upward to heat the thermostat turning the fan on. It will run until the engine cools down and the thermostat switches it off.
